Norrington here eschews any attempts to make points about period performance practice, and instead delivers a powerful but fairly "traditional" reading. He succeeds with what is most difficult--in movements like the Gloria, which can often be episodic, he maintains continuity and melds all the disparate episodes together into a seamless whole, while still maintaining the contrasts between them. Orchestra, chorus, and soloists are ideally balanced in the recording, and the soloists seem like a well-blended group, with none being too dominant or standing out by sounding different or worse than the others. Norrington's Gloria is exciting, and the rest of the work succeeds for the same reasons. Hard to believe this hasn't been reviewed yet, or received more attention than it has.

A satisfying Missa, now in bargain release 27 Sep 2007
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This well-recorded Missa Solemnis gives us a chance to hear the CSO and its famed chorus in full cry. I wouldn't rank Barenboim's conducting with the great ones -- or even the nearly great -- because he's trying to channel the ghost of Furtwangler, indulging in irritating, arbitrary slow downs and speed ups. On the plus side, he has a good group of soloists, none of them big names except for Waltraud Meier, and two huge assets in the orchestra and chorus. In the late Eighties into the Nineties Barenboim tackled several of the big bow-wow choral masterpieces, and this is probably his most successful effort, along with an equally satisfying Verdi Requiem.

Note: Be sure to look for the single-disc budget reissue on the Elatus label.

The best orchestra in America 20 Dec 2012
By jpbooklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The CSO never fails. A great recording well worth adding to anyone's collection. I wish the Chicago Symphony did more recordings. Most that I buy now were recorded years ago.
